Interesting... Usually these are just used for power factor correction on modern SOX gear. 4.5 MFD would be about sweet spot for a BSX26L 82 with SX26 igniter. The only SOX lamps I know that start on either high OVC or capacitors are 18w SOX. the rest usually either use a leak transformer with a high OVC or they have an igniter. US spec gear uses autotransformer gear to boost the voltage before it's regulated.

EDIT: I misread You'reusing it with a BSX36 which does use a series capacitror for ignition

What if I told you you could save 100% of your street lighting budget? Don't believe me? Buy an LED street light and run it for a week. the results will leave you in awe. (Aaaaaaand maybe wondering why you swapped that 70w SON)
